Music Night 🎶 A Success

Hello everyone,

The Kennedy Music Night was an extraordinary success. Ms. Hopkins and our Kennedy student musicians performed with aplomb to a packed house–standing room only–in the Kennedy gym, showcasing tunes reflecting holiday and happy themes.

Thank you to our numerous Kennedy administrative, teacher, and staff volunteers, coming in on their own time in the evening in order to make sure we had an safe and welcoming show. Our custodial staff also contributed greatly to this success.

I continue to be greatly impressed by the school spirit of the Kennedy Community, students, staff, administration and teachers.

Happy holidays, everyone!

Thank you.

Direct Drive Update

We have raised only 5%, or $1,270, of our $25,000 target so far. To ensure your students are equipped with the necessary supplies and have access to electives and after school programs, the PTO needs your donations.

Each donation of any amount received before the end of 2016 (extended from the original October deadline) will qualify your child for an entry into the class pizza party raffle.
